        Amends the Mobile Home Landlord and Tenant Rights Act  to  create      
   the  Mobile  Home  Park  Ombudsman.   Provides  that  the Ombudsman is      
   appointed by the Director of Public Health and shall be an employee of      
   the Department of Public Health.  Provides that  the  Ombudsman  shall      
   receive  and  investigate  complaints  related  to  the Act and report      
   violations of  the  Act  to  the  Attorney  General  for  enforcement.      
   Creates  the  Mobile  Home  Park  Owner's and Tenant Advisory Board to

   license  of  $100  plus  $5  for  each  mobile  home space in the park      
   (currently, $100 and $3 for each space).  Provides for  a  $5  license      
   fee for each space added to a mobile home park after original issuance

   that funds received from license fees for mobile home parks  shall  be      
   deposited  in  the  Facility  Licensing  Fund  (instead  of  the State
